Hello and welcome to my page. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. My name is Sheryl Barney and I currently live in Harwinton with my husband, daughter Molly (14), son Jack (12), and mutt Sabrina. I started my teaching career in New Milford at Schaghticoke Middle School where I taught 8th grade math for 6 years. After taking some time off with my children, I worked at Harwinton Consolidated Elementary School, where I was a math interventionist, for 5 years. When I'm not working I enjoy trips to our cabin in Maine, watching my daughter play soccer and my son run 5ks.
I firmly believe that every student is capable of excelling math and take great pride in getting through to those who have already decided they can't do it. I look forward to starting this journey with you and your children and am available through email or phone if I can answer any questions or discuss a plan for your child. Thank you for checking out my page.
